Mavi Deniz Side Collector Oil Skimmer is a vessel side mounted advancing skimming system for tug and work boats as well as for large offshore supply vessels. In addition to the skimmer unit on one or two sides of the work boat, the total Side Collector system typically consists of automatic or manual outrigger jib arms and sweeping booms.
The Side Collector System is based upon the proven stiff brush technology. Side Collector offers high performance and safety for Offshore, Onshore and Inland waters Oil Spill Recovery Operations. The Side Collector operates effectively at vessel speeds of up to 4 knots, resulting in excellent vessel maneuverability and very high oil encounter rate.
The new generation brush conveyor belt is a double acting skimming system for the Side Collector. The double acting brush conveyor belt can be rotated in both directions and has a double brush scraper that allows the two-way operation for all kinds of oils from light to the heaviest. Moreover, to enhance the selectivity to separate oils, the side collector system has an adjustable back plate to control the flow when recovering light, medium or heavy viscous oils.
The encountered oil is directed to the skimmer and scraped further to the incorporated hydraulic oil transfer pump. The number of brush chains selected is based on vessel size and required capacity.
Owing to the high recovery speed, the side collector system is able to recover the largest possible area of an expanding oil slick at sea. The deployment of the system can start skimming oil within minutes of arrival on site and be operated by a small crew requiring very little specialized training.
Detailed drawings and design of the side collector system is tailor-made for each individual vessel for optimized efficiency, operation and safety, taking into account vessel particulars, capacity requirements and other factors.
The Side Collector system can be fitted in various types and sizes of vessels allowing them to serve as oil recovery units. It can be installed in new-buildings as well as in existing vessels. Please note the specifications shown here are examples for a single side system.
